DESCRIPTION

DYE OUT is a specially formulated water based alkaline tank cleaner. DYE OUT is extremely efficient to remove any dye discolouration, stains and footprints of any colour (red, green, yellow etc.) in cargo tanks caused by carriage of dyed gasoline cargoes.

DYE OUT is bio-degradable and free from hydrocarbon solvents and estrogenic compounds. Safe to be used on epoxy coatings.

DYE OUT is IMO-approved. Only cleaners registered in Annex10 of IMO’s MEPC.2/ Circular can be used and disposed of at sea for cargo tank cleaning, when the cargo residue slops are disposable at sea. Its composition meets the criteria for not being harmful to the marine environment according to MARPOL Annex V.

 

APPLICATION

Use DYE OUT for removing traces of discolouration, before loading sensitive cargoes.

Please refer to “CHEMO TANK CLEANING SOLUTIONS” Brochure, which summarizes the solutions that CHEMO offers for tackling a variety of contamination and deposit problems.

 

USE AND DOSING

Instructions are based on experience and are meant only as a guide since circumstances for each tank cleaning operation vary. They are not intended to interfere with the judgment of the vessel’s responsible personnel.

The Recirculation Method is recommended. Dilute DYE OUT in seawater in one of the slop tanks. Usually a 2% solution is sufficient. Nonetheless, for heavier or more stubborn discoloration/ stains, a higher concentrated solution may be necessary.

Suggested water quantity: 30 – 50 tons depending on ship’s size and required quantity to establish a sufficient volume for a proper recirculation method. Recirculate this solution in 3 cargo tanks over 30 minutes to 1 hour. One solution is usually sufficient for three tanks.

Perform a wall wash test on the surfaces, testing for colour. Use CHEMO WALL WASH TEST KIT.

Rinse the tanks properly with either hot seawater or freshwater depending upon the next cargo.


Note: Remember to always check on the bulkhead for choosing the proper cleaner dilution, as well as for potential incompatibilities, before full-scale application.
